Gluten Free, High Protein, Low Carb Chocolate... enough said. From ibreatheimhungry blog. I left off the frosting as it added a lot of fat. The recipe for it can be found at http://www.ibreatheimhungry.com/2012/07/chickpea-chocolate-cupcakes-low.html

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c. cacao powder
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 c. coconut sugar
  • 15 oz. cooked chickpeas
  • 4 egg
  • 1/3 c. canned coconut milk
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (F). Drain and rinse your chickpeas. Add the chickpeas and almond milk (or water) to a blender or food processor. Puree until very VERY smooth. Add eggs one at a time, blending after each. Add the coconut oil, cocoa powder, baking powder and sweetener – blend until smooth. Pour into greased muffin tins or cupcake liners and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool.
